ActivitiesWhipsnade Zoo (0344 225 1826) is 30 minutes away by car, situated on the northern edge of the Chiltern Hills which spread away to the south. It makes this glamping site an enviable spot for walking with a footpath running along the top fence if you fancy on striding out straight from your pod. If not, drive a little south to enjoy The Ridge Way, a long distance route which runs the full length of the Chilterns. It's 25 minutes to The National Trust's Waddesdon Manor (01296 820414), a magnificent house and grounds in the style of a 16th-century French château, while families will prefer Mead Open Farm (01525 852954), where children can enjoy hands-on lambing time in spring and animal handling in summer.
Food & DrinkAll guests receive a welcome pack on arrival with milk, orange juice, tea, coffee. BBQ packs are also available from the local butcher, Yirrell William Ltd (01525 373489), and can be organised in advance. It's a 15-minute walk to the nearest pub, The Rose & Crown (01296 708414) in Wingrave, which is just over a mile by road but less if you follow the local footpaths. There are a further 4 pubs all within 2½ miles of the campsite. The 16th-century, half-thatched Royal Oak (01296 681262) in Aston Abbotts, The Queen's Head (01296 688268) in Wing, The Cock Inn (01296 752210) just a little further up the same high street and The Stag (01296 660602) in Mentmore. For the very best, drive the 6½ miles to Ivinghoe for some fine dining at The Kings Head Restaurant (01296 668388).
The nearest train station is in Cheddington, 4 miles away, with regular services to London Euston and Birmingham. Leighton Buzzard railway station is 5¼ miles away, the trains from here are often quicker, taking around 35 minutes, but less regular.
